- Costume design for Chiarina in Carnaval, 1910
- Costume for Chiarina in Carnaval, 1930s
Carnival, first performed in 1910, was revived by Colonel W. de Basil’s Russian Ballet company during the 1930s. The costume for Chiarina, which reflects her youthful joy, was re-made according to Bakst’s original design. The ruffled crinoline skirt is faithful to the designer’s concept; however the bodice differs slightly from the 1910 drawing.
